Concerned neighbors reported to Defense Secretary Mr. Waiswa Latif at around 11:00 PM on January 23, 2024, about a closed house that had obvious bloodstains on it.

“Preliminary findings reveal Acen Jesca’s multiple fresh wounds, particularly around her neck, while Ogwal Kenneth, presumed to be the assailant, had a cut around his neck. The crime scene indicates a violent struggle, with bloodstains evident on the mattress,” revealed ASP Luke Owoyesigyire Deputy Public Relations Officer for Kampala Metropolitan Police.
